Thomas Nelson Announces Major Book From Max Lucado GRACE
GRACE: More Than We Deserve,Greater Than We Imagine
Coming September 2012
August 1st, 2012, Nashville, TN—Thomas Nelson announces the next trade book from Max Lucado—GRACE: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine (International Trade Paper Edition, September 18, 2012). This all-new book from pastor and internationally bestselling author Max Lucado marks his 29th adult trade book, and this is his first title to explore not only what grace is, but also what it does and why it is essential.
“Grace is God’s best idea,” Lucado explains. “His decision to ravage people by love, to rescue passionately, and restore justly—what rivals it? Of all his wondrous works, grace, in my estimation, is the magnum opus.”
In GRACE, Lucado asks deeper questions about grace, avoiding easy platitudes. “Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?” He continues: “God’s grace has a wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it.
Lucado will embark on an international conference speaking tour to coincide with the release of GRACE. The highlights of this tour include keynote speeches at multiple Women of Faith events, Women of Joy conferences and World Mandate 2012. Lucado spoke on the message of GRACE at the 2012 National Religious Broadcasters convention in February.
Lucado will also be the keynote speaker at two World Vision Canada events, visiting two Canadian cities for the first time. On October 17th and 18th 2012, Lucado will be joined by award-winning worship leader, Robin Mark in hosting an evening inspired by grace in both Toronto and Edmonton. http://www.gracetour2012.com/
GRACE will also be featured in a worldwide simulcast on September 22, 2012. The two-hour simulcast will be marketed for broadcast to a nationwide network of hundreds of churches and small groups by in:caste events. http://incastevents.com/lucadograce/
